Paco Storage - Rolled or unrolled

Does it matter?

Ditto, I figure I store all of my sleeping pads flat and with the values open.

Sorta like asking whether it is best to store a good down sleeping bag stuffed or unstuffed. The latter, obviously.

I left mine in the basement for a few weeks folded in half and the crees won't go away.... So don't store them folded either rolled or flat. My packs rarely get rolled they are either on the boat for seats or in the back of the truck for the dogs.
Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.

Definitely unrolled and laying flat, if you want to keep the same cushioning from the foam over the long run.

Definitely unrolled....better for foam and also helps prevent as much corner damage. All of my friends who store them rolled have corners that have cracked and leak.

I do not know of a single type of sleeping pad that is best stored rolled to be honest.
